Mary Kennedy, the estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has died.

She was 52. Law enforcement sources say she was found dead in her Mount Kisco, N.Y., home this morning. The cause of death has not been reported.

Mary and RFK Jr. were married in 1994. She was Robert's second wife. The couple, who separated nearly two years ago, has four kids together.

The radio host, political activist and nephew of JFK filed for divorce from his wife mere days before Mary Kennedy was charged with DUI in 2010.

According to Radar Online, a source revealed that the cause of death was suicide, though police have yet to even confirm or deny this report.

In any case, may she rest in peace.

UPDATE: "We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant, creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her," Mary Kennedy's family said in a statement released through her lawyer Kerry Lawrence.

"Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation.

I love how the Kennedy clan spinned this into a "She was always a troubled person" (alcohol/depression). What a convenient story. Said the same stuff about the girl raped at the compound in Florida; the same thing about Marilyn, Joan Kennedy, - any woman they need to throw under the bus. Well if you ask me, RFK looks pretty terra cotta reddish and hungover in his pictures. Maybe he is a heavy drinker. Maybe he is a troubled/depressed person too. But he won't kill himself because he was not despondent over his divorce situation like Mary was because she had gooood reason compared to him!


My mother took her life 5 years ago. I miss her so much everyday and wish that did not happened . Rest in Peace Mary.


Mary should have taken to heart the words of Ivana Trump, "Don't get mad...get EVERYTHING!"


Even the rich and famous, or almost rich and famous, do not always know how to seek help or ask for help. Some people feel ashamed to reach out for help. Yes, so sad to lose a woman at 52 who has 4 children. We could use more public service announcements on tv and radio for people to get help at their local hospital or local psychologists office when they feel hopeless.


Mary, you tried your very hardest and did your level best. I cry for you because I am you only I am still hanging on. I am sure God greeted you with open arms. We will look after your children do not worry. To all of you who cast a stone, gather and take on her load! Or help with the load of other Marys like her.


Truly unfortunate that relationships sometimes end up like this. Prayers to their family.


It is very sad that Mary Kennedy, an educated woman and mother felt she had to end her life. She should have received all the help she needed, and know how to utilize the help to better her situation.


where is the rest of my comment?


Rest in peace, dear Mary.


This is so sad. Her children needed her and she felt too desperate to live for them. I think suicide is a selfish act, but one never knows the anguish that goes on in one's mind to commit this act.
May she RIP.
